What’s the buzz on Twitter?
The highest scoring average in NBA history by a player in his 19th season belongs to Kobe Bryant (22.3 PPG).
Bryant only played 35 games, so if you disqualify him the next player is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (14.6 PPG).
LeBron James is averaging 28.0 PPG in this, his 19th season 🤯 pic.twitter.com/a8npYdHYTW

LeBron James last night:
James has recorded six straight 30-point games, the longest such streak in NBA history by a player age 35 years or older.
He’s also the oldest player in NBA history to average at least 30p/10r/5a over a six-game span. pic.twitter.com/5GXHKxU5wC

New story: Was it turnovers that did the Lakers in against Memphis, like LeBron and Fizdale suggested? Or was it the fourth quarter shot selection, like Westbrook brought up? One determining factor was undeniable: the outstanding play of Ja Morant es.pn/3zcX4pP

Rudy Gobert on the road/home record discrepancy: “We need to find a way to be fresher at home because we look fresher on the road for some reason. Most of the teams in the NBA, that’s not the case.” – 12:52 AM
Rudy Gobert agreed with Quin’s criticism, saying that defensive rebounding and transition were two particular areas they could have done better at tonight to expand the lead. Portland had 11 O-rebs, 18 points off turnovers, 22 fast-break points. – 12:51 AM
Harrison Barnes took it up strong – off the glass and completely misses the layup. Mavs ball, up two with 27.7 to go after their final timeout. – 12:49 AM
Harrison Barnes tied this game at 88-88 with 4:03 to go. Barnes with 14 points, one of five Kings in double figures. Davion Mitchell & De’Aaron Fox also with 14 apiece. – 12:36 AM
The Jazz take this one over Portland 120-105…..Utah moves to 25-9 on the season.Gobert with 22 and 14. Gay with 21. Clarkson with 19. Whiteside with 15 and 11. The Jazz win their eighth consecutive road game. They move to 12-3 on the road overall. On to minny on Friday – 12:30 AM
FINAL: Jazz 120, Blazers 105. Gobert 22/14/2. Gay 21/6. JC 19/5a/4r. Whiteside 15/10. Conley 15/6. Bogey 15/3/2. Portland just 46p after halftime on 18-49 shooting. – 12:28 AM
“This one means a lot. I think 10K is better than 5, 6, 7.”
Devin Booker on becoming 7th youngest to reach 10,000 points.
The first six?
LeBron, KD, Kobe, Melo, T-Mac and Giannis.
Booker joked he’d be at 12K if it wasn’t for Jeff Hornacek, but thanked all his #Suns coaches. pic.twitter.com/UYCtBc5RU9

Gobert with another dunk to give the Jazz a 107-87 lead with 7:26 to play. Powell is at 37 minutes, Lillard is at 34, so unless something flips, you figure both those guys are nearing the end of their nights. – 12:04 AM
It looked like the Lakers were on their way to another win, with LeBron leading the way just before his 37th birthday.
But Ja Morant went off and the Lakers’ offensive broke down. And now a team that says it needs to trust each other can share the blame: ocregister.com/2021/12/29/lak…
